kINDA A DUMB ?


i AM BUILDING A ROCKER TRAIN FROM A PLAN. IT SAYS TO USE 3/4 " STOCK I AM ASSUMING THAT THIS MEANS PLYWOOD 3/4" BUT I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE. ALSO IT TELLS ME TO USE A 1 1/2" THICK BOARD FOR THE ROCKERS. I AM USING A 2X8 FOR THIS. IS A JIG/SABER SAW THE BEST SAW FOR THE JOB?

"1x" stock is 3/4" thick. 3/4" plywood is actually 23/32" in most cases.

A jigsaw will work to cut the curves for the rockers. A bandsaw would be better if you know anyone that has one.

1 x 4, 1 x 6, 1 x 8....basically "boards", half the thickness of a 2 x 4,6,8, used for finer finish work. Like a 1 x 6 maple board (3/4" thick)....

J

Did that help, or are you more confused now?
